    Lol yeah I remember you losing sleep over that one...

    Currently using one of DHMs 27mm exhaust gaskets.

    I like how GFz design will fill the whole exhaust port making it line up completely center and even, did you install yours yet?

    Not yet! Depends on how hungover I am from my birthday, but Sunday is the plan!

    BTW - Brembo front caliper is one of my favorite upgrades I've done. Consider it next!

    Pics of crack before Frame is turned in to Honda (Covered under warranty), also discovered another crack / break... Last pic is where the rectifier is mounted.

    Other shit Catagory... ThrowBack to roughly 15 years ago

    Went back to Cali to visit family and at the time these little cheap chinese pocket bikes were all over the place. 49cc pocket bike parts

    Couldnt help but buy one and send back to florida, CHEAP is the keyword after only having for a few weeks shit kept breaking and falling off left and right.

    The little thing was so much fun I decided to tear it down and rebuild it all over, replacing all the cheap chinese chinsy stuff... PocketBikesUnlimited was my go to

    The HULK is my favorite, so much I ALMOST went with a Z125pro just to use the theme... (Very glad I didnt) 2stroke 60cc this thing would eat my grom for breakfast (in its stock form)

    Shit Philly knowing what I know now compared to then, wish I still had the little guy a real motor swap would have been beast.

    A KX65 stuffed in there would look like a 300 swapped grom

    Some progress... Digging the new swingarm I like that I can keep my axel sliders, they sit perfectly flush on the supplied spacers without obstructing the chain alignment markers.

    The valve tappet covers tie in nicely with the GFz cam cover also installed GFz header gasket, WOW... strong solid seal and perfect alignment hands down one of his best pieces.

    That swingarm is sexy!

    Who makes that rear sprocket?

    Also, how do you get your wheel stripe tape so straight? LOL

    Oh and I can't believe the shitty frame issue with Honda. Honda is better than this. I hope they are forced into a recall with this because this is a severe safety issue and it should be covered for the life of the bike!

    37tooth Vortex sprocket... wheel tape I took the rims off to apply, the brand I use has rim size specific tape that come in qtr round sections.

    This size has four sections makes it ez to keep straight...

    I think this blue would look badass on your grom https://www.amazon.com/customTAYLOR3...a-744688697189

    Yeah I was suprised only one year warranty on the frame, something like that should be covered longer. Im just glad it worked out in my favor
